Shopping for dress shirts can be a daunting task, especially if you're not sure what to look for. To help you find the perfect dress shirt, here are 5 things to avoid when shopping for them:

1. Poor fit

One of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a dress shirt is the fit. A dress shirt that is too big or too small will not only look unflattering, but will also be uncomfortable to wear. To find the right fit, be sure to try on a few different sizes and pay attention to how the shirt fits your shoulders, torso, and arms. A dress shirt that is too big may bunch up around your waist or sleeves, while a shirt that is too small may be too constricting or pull at the buttons.

At Cheegs, we understand that there are various body types, which is why we offer slim and classic fit and offer free exchanges if the dress shirt is not the perfect size.

2. Low-quality fabrics

It's important to invest in high-quality dress shirts that are made from durable fabrics that will hold up over time. Avoid dress shirts made from cheap, low-quality fabrics that are prone to pilling, fading, or shrinking. Cheegs offers a unique hi-tech fabric made from 60% recycled materials that offers all you need to get through your day.

3. Unflattering colors and patterns

While it's important to have a few neutral-colored dress shirts in your wardrobe, don't be afraid to experiment with different colors and patterns. Just be sure to avoid colors and patterns that are unflattering or that don't suit your skin tone or personal style. For example, if you have a cool skin tone, you may want to avoid dress shirts with warm, orange-toned colors. Similarly, if you have a busy or intricate pattern on other parts of your outfit, you may want to avoid dress shirts with busy patterns as well, to avoid clashing.

4. Poor craftsmanship

When shopping for dress shirts, be sure to look for shirts that are well-constructed and have good attention to detail. Avoid dress shirts with loose threads, misaligned buttons, or other signs of poor craftsmanship. These types of issues can be annoying and may even cause the dress shirt to fall apart after just a few wears. Cheegs collarless dress shirts are engineered with utmost care and attention.
